How many of us feel motivated to make changes after we read life affirming quotes? Something in our brain clicks and we are inspired to move forward in aspects of our lives that hold us back.
#1 New York Times bestselling author, Tony Robbins consults with athletes, entertainers, CEOs, and US presidents. I follow him on social media and have appreciated daily inspiration:
“The people who are the most alive, driven and fulfilled are those that seek to lead by a life of contribution and service to something greater than themselves.”
“The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.”
“Whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life.”
“Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes instantly.”
In his latest book, Life Force, Tony Robbins shares interviews with more than 100 of the world’s top medical minds and the latest research, comeback stories, and advancements in precision medicine that we can apply to help extend the length and quality of our lives. We learn how we can increase our energy, strength, vitality, power, and life span. We learn about new medical breakthroughs and how we can transform the quality of our lives for the better. We can follow scientific solutions to erase our deepest fears of getting sick, receiving a life-threatening diagnosis, or feeling the effects of aging. Robbins maintains that we can wake up every day with increased energy, a more bulletproof immune system, and learn how to turn back our biological clocks. It’s a book of answers to questions we didn’t know to ask. It turns out that when we are ill, worrying about it is the worst thing we can do for our immune systems. The power of our mindset gives us more control than we think.
Tony was told he suffered from a variety of irreversible health challenges. He didn’t listen to several doctors who wanted to operate. He consulted with many more. And he read all he could and made decisions based on the smartest science. He experienced firsthand how regenerative technology helped him heal and made him stronger than ever. We don’t have to do all that research – though we all can if we’re so inclined – because Robbins is sharing it all with us. His book is worth the read and it gives me hope, especially during these COVID times. We can strengthen our bodies and our minds, boost our energy, increase our muscle mass and metabolism, and learn about the advances in weight loss, preventing cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. This valuable information can ease our fears and help us live better, stronger, and longer lives.
In combination with our own spiritual paths, the book is a bible for healthy aging to remain vital and to welcome the years of change coming our way. It’s worth pursuing some of these recommendations on diet, exercise, sleep, supplements, and annual diagnostics to make important changes and be happier doing so. Inspiration lives on the campuses at Jewish Senior Life. Staying positive helps us to live fully. During these challenging times, I pray we continue to seek and find the light and the inspiration to guide us to be better citizens and more loving humans. Sending peace to all, no matter the challenges, we can supply our own light.
